Learn more about our partnerships and collaborations by reaching out to us any time through our connect page. In the meantime, take a look at an experience that we were very proud to present for Boston Fashion Week in 2016. The opportunity to work together happened organically, soon after we bumped into each other at an Anderson Paak concert. A few e-mails, calls and iced coffees later we found ourselves immersed in bringing an experience to Boston Fashion Week that it's never seen before. We hope you had as much fun at the event as we did putting it together. Those who attended this event received a Sharetape to take with them, that lead to this page. Enjoy!
HOw you got here:
Praise hands to Sharetapes.
We all remember the feeling we had when someone made us a mix-tape, handed it to us and told us to listen to the 4th song first (seriously listen to that one first) and we wanted to share that sentiment with you as a token of our appreciation for your support.
Richard Dupé, the Founder of Sharetapes remembers too, that's why they're our go to partners for distributing dope content post events. Rich is always down to chat, hear more about what we've got going on and support our vision. A true platform for musicians and brands to gift, share and distribute music.
AT KRÉYOL, WE CELEBRATE INDIVIDUALITY THROUGH BOLD AND ENTICING VISUAL AESTHETIC. WE AIM TO IMPACT THE WORLD ONE GARMENT AT A TIME, MAKING IT ABOUT MORE THAN JUST FASHION. KRÉYOL IS A MOVEMENT. WE AIM TO ENLIGHTEN, EDUCATE AND EMPOWER BY USING FASHION TO INCREASE AWARENESS OF SOCIAL CAUSES AFFECTING PEOPLE DOMESTICALLY AND ABROAD.
MConroy ART - ARTIST STATEMENT :
My paintings could best be described as the documentation of all my run-ins as visual outbursts depicting a life’s worth of clashes and epiphanies. Art to me is within us and if embraced, and creativity utilized, it can reside in all aspects of your life. I know it does in mine. I was born and raised in Dorchester, a blue collar culturally diverse neighborhood in Boston. When I found painting, it was like writing visual poems. I draw my inspiration from the city and community I live in, the people I interact with, fight with, fall in love with, and the music I listen too. Hip hop pulses through my loose graffiti style while my love for punk rock gives it a society challenging edge. My paintings are filled with visual question and affirmations, while encouraging my willingness to be myself at all costs. Painting allows me to express. I believe art resides on the ground floor and in the basements, as close to the earth as possible, always inclusive, always eye level. I hope you can feel something when you look at my work, identify with the content, or make it mean something for you personally.
